Regarding Classic Shell 3.5.1. First, a giant THANK YOU. :)

Classic Shell has solved nearly all of my issues with Windows 7 Start and program menus. But I still find most of Windows Explorer to be a clunky, unproductive mess.

- Is there anything in Classic Shell that addresses either the font size or line spacing within Windows Explorer?

- Is there any way to get rid of the bar with 'Organize' 'Burn' 'Share with' and 'New Folder' buttons? I've no need for any of them.

Another thing I'm having difficulty with in Windows Explorer is dragging and dropping things into folders that contain subfolders. When I attempt to drag something into the folder, because of the way Win7 highlights an item the whole way across the window, it often gets copied/moved into a subfolder. Not sure if Classic Shell addresses this, or if maybe there's some other workaround.

That is the command bar. Have a look at this:

OR, you can change it to something useful for you
